Taylor Swift’s new album “The Tortured Poets Department” is about to be released and fans are trying to figure out what the song “loml” means. What does it mean? Who is this about? Here’s what we know.

Taylor Swift’s new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” drops April 19, and with the release of its tracklist, what else have fans had to do other than overanalyze each song title to figure out what it’s about? acted?

The twelfth song on the tracklist for Taylor’s eleventh studio album is called “loml”, a common online abbreviation for “love of my life”.

However, was anything Taylor did that simple? She is known for having layers of meaning and symbolism in her lyrics. Her songwriting experience has made her one of the greatest poets of our generation.

And while we won’t know for sure until the release date, we can speculate about who and what Taylor’s song “loml” is about. Here’s what we think.

Who is Taylor Swift’s “loml” about?

First impressions and general consensus online all seem to have led to the theory that Taylor’s song “loml” will be about Joe Alwyn.

The two were notoriously private together, but Joe was also Taylor’s longest public relationship with the couple in over six years.

The track could be a breakup song paying homage to the time they spent together and how it all ended. There are already rumors that the entire album could revolve around their relationship, right down to the album title.

“So Long, London,” a song from the new album, seems to be a strong hint that “The Tortured Poets Department” might be about London-born ex Joe, given that Taylor’s 2019 song “London Boy” is about of how they “I would spend my days in Camden Market, Highgate, Brixton and Shoreditch.

Joe revealed in 2022 that he was in a group chat called The Tortured Man Club which he shared with actors Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott. A favorite fan theory is that the album title was directly inspired by it, as Paul had a direct connection to Tay in that he dated Taylor’s close friend Phoebe Bridges for two years.

A fan left a very interesting theory in the comments section of a TikTok regarding the fact that “loml” is about Joe.

The fan wrote: “Maybe it’s pretty much like how he started out texting her with full words like ‘love of my life’ and turns into a shortened loml because that he couldn’t be bothered to say it completely.”

Taylor and Joe never spoke publicly after the breakup, but it seemed to be mutual to some extent. Could their love have faded like it sometimes does in long-term relationships and that’s what “loml” is about?

Another theory is that “Loml” is somehow related to Harry Styles. This is a bit of a stretch, however, Taylor and Harry dated between 2012 and 2013 and Harry released a song called “Love of My Life” in 2022 in his album “Harry’s House.” Could Taylor’s trace of the same but abbreviated name be a call and answer to this?

Finally, we have to consider the possibility that “loml” could refer to Tay’s current boyfriend, Travis Kelce.

The couple have been in love since 2023 and according to a source speaking to American weekly, “Taylor has already written songs about Travis… She’s written at least two songs. They have to do with their love story and falling in love with him.

The only reason we think “loml” might not be about Travis is because the source added that her songs about him are private at the moment.

“She probably won’t share them with anyone.” They’re very special,” the source told the magazine. “Songs are like poetry to her. Just like most people journal, Taylor writes lyrics. Her relationship with Travis inspired her.

What is Taylor Swift’s “loml” about?

If “loml” is about a man, read our theories above. However, there is a HUGE possibility that Taylor changed what the acronym might mean.

Fans online pointed out that besides “love of my life”, it could also mean “loss of my life” or “loss of my love”, which could refer to his breakup.

But the variations are endless, a favorite theory online seems to be that “loml” means “love OR my life”, and will be about Tay having to choose between love in her private life and a career in her public life.
